Oh, how I miss writing something here! I guess the slump has something to do with having no Coffee House for what seem to be an endless two weeks. Okay, I made a promise to myself that I’ll only start watching Coffee House once episode 9 airs already but apparently that was an Epic Fail on my part. I “almost” managed to succeed what with watching Kang Ji Hwan’s old dramas during the past two weeks but then I saw this fanvid that was so apt for our EunSoo couple (Yep, EY-JS shipper all the way!). I guess that was one of the reasons that urged me to watch Coffee House despite avoiding it for so many weeks already. 🙂 Or, it might also be the fact that probably bits and pieces of the story is somewhat closer to home for me. I swear I think I played this fanvid more than a hundred times already! Then out of nowhere I just went cuckoo (LOL) and tagged most of the pics I had with this guy friend (that I realized whom I “liked” more than as a friend) and it just amazes me how many pics we had together through the years (either just us or us in a group). And while I’m at it, I went to his FB wall also and discovered some group pics with me in it as well. 🙂 Oh, and yes, this guy friend does wear glasses too! I wonder if he will be able to read this. Haha! Anyways, here’s the MV.
Now, speaking of going cuckoo, I spent my last weekend watching Capital Scandal once again with my mom. It was the first Kang Ji Hwan drama that I watched almost 3 years ago that drove me to become a KJH fan up to now. I still clearly remember Woo Wan and Yeo Kyeong’s coincidental first meeting at the train station wherein Yeo Kyeong spoke the secret code; cuckoo of which Wan’s response was the relevantly valid, “Maybe it already flew from it’s nest”. I never watch those period types of dramas ’cause I find anything related to history boring and dreadful (Probably stemming from my dislike of History class way back in highschool). However, the story involves a bet, so it’s quite interesting how that bet figures in the love story amidst a rising rebellion. I so enjoyed watching it! It has all the elements of comedy (though a bit slapstick), romance, action, intrigue all rolled into one drama. To top it off they managed to balance all these elements so well. The transition from one dramatic scene to a comedic one looks effortless. Last but not least, of course, the oh so mesmerizing portrayal of a carefree hurting wayward playboy slash reluctant hero by Kang Ji Hwan. You’ve just got to watch this fanvid that captures the brilliance of Capital Scandal.
Since, I’m totally so missing KJH the past two weeks during that first week I took solace in Hong Gil Dong, despite it’s much less desired ending. Yes, up to now I still felt cheated of the ending. Why couldn’t they just get back at the beginning of the story? Sigh. 😦
With Hong Gil Dong, KJH perfected that reluctant hero persona. It was such a joy watching him! Again, I don’t watch sageuk types of dramas but this one’s an exception all because of KJH. I know I’m so biased, can’t help it. Let’s reminisce the drama of Hong Gil Dong with this beautiful fanvid.
